    The lighthouse in Bastorf is around 20 meters high and is one of the smallest lighthouses in Germany. Nevertheless, the lighthouse above Cape Bukspitze - which is why the correct name for lighthouse Buk - is the highest. Topographically, it is the highest tower of its kind at almost 80 meters above sea level. In 1878, 18 months after the start of construction, its beacon shone out over the Baltic Sea for the first time up to 18 nautical miles. The light in the tower has been rotating automatically for 40 years. With good visibility you can see from here to the island of Fehmarn and Warnemünde.

    The lighthouse is open to visitors all year round from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the summer months until 5 p.m. Admission per person is 2.50 euros. You can take a coffee break in Café Valentis.

    The Bastorf lighthouse stands on the Signalberg above Cape Bukspitze and is one of the smallest in Germany. In addition to its function as an orientation fire on the western Baltic Sea, its main task is to warn of "Hannibal" a sandbar in the entrance to Wismar Bay.

    The way up to the lighthouse is a bit difficult, but the view is worth it. Especially nice when the full moon illuminates the paths and fields at night.

    Next to the lighthouse is a caffè / restaurant. Definitely worth a visit here. Very nice view to the Baltic Sea.
    In summer you sit on the sheltered terrace.

    A lighthouse is always a nice destination. There is also a restaurant by the lighthouse.

    Because of Corona the light tower is closed. The cafe at the lighthouse is open.
